Five on Friday!

This is my first timing joining in the 5 on Friday fun! 

1. Am I allowed to say that 5 on Friday is one of my favorites or is that cheating???  I have just loved reading so many others lists that I just finally had to join in the fun myself!  It's really helped inspire me to start blogging again after finding so many other interesting bloggers through a.liz adventures - I'm actually linking up my list as well - this is the first time I've ever linked up anywhere!  Ha!

2. I love watching my sweet boys during swim lessons at Charlotte Aquatics.  I'm with BG every day and I wouldn't trade it for the world ~ but my sweet husband is gone more often (somebody's gotta bring home the bacon!) so seeing these two bonding while BG learns to swim is such a pleasure!

3. Nate gifted me recently with all of the books missing from my Barefoot Contessa collection.  I have used many of the recipes in Back to Basics lately - we're actually making the Niman Ranch burgers with caramelized onions and a side of creamy cheddar grits this weekend. Oh, Ina!

4. These Morning Glory Muffins are delicious!  I made a batch this past weekend and had enough batter for 24 muffins...I froze most of them for easy and healthy breakfasts down the road.  Delish!

5.  The pool in our "backyard" a.k.a. our neighbors pool!  We just love popping over there to take a dip, especially when naptime ends earlier than normal and we need a little distraction until dinner! Don't worry they usually meet us out back to dip their toes in too!

So, those are my five...what have you been loving lately??



  1. Yeah for joining your first linkup!!! The Barefoot Contessa has so many great recipes! So jealous you get to use your neighbors pool it has Ben in the 90's here and the humity is brutal! Stay cool!

  2. That is so fun that your neighbors have a pool and are willing to share! Hope you have a great weekend.
